We evaluate Chinese restrictions on the number of foreign movies distributed domestically, particularly an increase in the quota in 2012. We estimate a structural model of consumer demand for movies. We solve a discrete choice model of consumer behavior that is dynamic in the sense that consumers may see movies only once. We find that the reliance on reduced-form age profiles is greatly reduced in our dynamic model relative to standard static approaches. Counterfactual experiments show that consumer welfare increases by 6% due to the import liberalization and that there is relatively little substitution between foreign and domestic movies.
